Friendly Encounters: Mark Gubicza and Dodger Bobble

This is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.

Joshua Kohl is the creative baseball fan behind DodgerBobble, a cool website dedicated to the Los Angeles Dodgers, bobble heads and baseball.  While the site hasn't been updated in a long time, there is so much baseball goodness still to be found there.  I love this site.
I love the picture below.  Former pitcher Mark Gubicza was a solid pitcher for the Kansas City Royals for 13 seasons.  He pitched one final year with the Anaheim Angels.  More specifrically, he pitched 2 games (4 2/3 innings) for the Angels.  Yet, there he was at an Angels Fan Fest.
I didn't even remember that he pitched for the Angels.  Given his short stay there, I forgive myself for that.  This is exactly why I love the picture.  There is Joshua, a big fan of the Dodgers, with Angels alum Gubicza.
Gubicza with the Angels is why "Cards That Never Were" was created.  Topps did not get Gubicza with the Angels, but Dodger Bobble did!
